In 1974, 100 years after the creation of Cristal, Jean-Claude Rouzaud decided to create the Cristal Rosé Cuvée. To achieve this, he selected old vine Pinot noir grapes from the finest Grand Cru vineyards at Aÿ, which is now cultivated according to biodynamic principles. The unique calcareous clay soil, which gives the grapes an exquisite minerality, enables the vines (in the best years) to attain exceptional fruit maturity, complemented by a crystalline acidity.
A blend of around 55% Pinot noir and 45% Chardonnay, comprising 20% of wine matured in oak tuns, Cristal Rosé is produced using the saignée ( bleeding ) process after cold maceration. The Cristal Rosé Cuvée is aged, on average, for 6 years in Louis Roederer’s cellars.
Light, delicate soft pink hue. Bright, vibrant, ultra-fine bubbles
Refined bouquet of freshly-picked tart red fruit (wild strawberry, raspberry) and lemon-scented flower petals.
The pure, precise fragrances delicately intertwine and are gradually joined by overtones of fresh almonds, bread and spices, cocoa bean. These nuanced, intricately interwoven fragrances are ethereal and transcendent.
Intense, velvety and captivating on the palate. The juicy, concentrated red fruit gradually pulls towards a raspberry liqueur character complemented by invigorating, sweet citrus aromas.
The harmony and delicacy of the wine is reinforced by the creamy bubbles which create a sensation of roundness and concentration.
The mineral freshness lengthens the palate; it becomes vertical, chalky, saline and sapid with a sensation of perpetual acceleration created by the pure, bright limestone.
